Emerging evidence is already exposing the Bush/Cheney
administration�s bloody fingerprints all over the conflict in Georgia:
in Georgia�s invasion of South Ossetia
war in Georgia
war a neocon election ploy
to target Russia
Russia responded by finishing the South Ossetia fighting
quickly, clearly establishing its dominance for the moment. But what will be
Washington�s response now?
Georgia/Ossetia is a perfect set-up. It is even better than
a false flag operation. The Russian Threat will be the only issue, bar none,
and Washington has only just begun pumping it up. It will be �it,� no matter
which faction ultimately sits in the White House, and could well decide which
faction manages to be installed.
The Cold War is back, and it may not be cold for very long: Toward a
Broader Russia-US military confrontation?
Both neocons and neolibs now have a unified enemy again, and
a propaganda cause behind which to mobilize.
Note that neoliberal hawk Zbigniew Brzezinski, a chief
architect behind imperial plans targeted against Russian and Chinese
geostrategic agendas, has influence behind both US presidential aspirants,
Barack Obama and John McCain. His ruthless colleague and neocon counterpart,
Henry Kissinger is in McCain�s camp.
Washington functionaries and 90 percent of the media are
marching uniformly with propaganda pushing the idea that it was a Russian
attack on �sovereign� Georgia, not an armed response to an aggressive
provocation by Georgia armed with US troops, covert operatives and US
The western media is trumpeting that �something has to be
done to show the Russians that they can�t just run roughshod over the continent,�
while the actions of US covert operations, unacknowledged American fatalities
(dead intelligence assets, soldiers lying dead in the streets of Ossetia) get
silence. Note how the massive propaganda apparatus, a save-Georgia public
relations machine (identical to the save-Iraqi-babies campaign launched before
the Gulf War) was in place, seemingly before the fighting even started.
There is a good reason why Kissinger and the Bush family
appeared so relaxed at the Beijing Olympic Games. The top echelons of the
Anglo-American empire have already set up the �chessboard,� with multiple
contingencies. It�s all been taken care of.
Barring miraculous developments, Georgia has become the new
Vietnam, complete with fear of commies, oil supplies threatened (genuinely as
well as fictionally), and real world war. The perfect planetary conflagration.
Rank and file Americans, the entire world, may be sick of
war and deception, but fear of a mightily-armed Russia -- a true, living
superpower adversary that actually dropped bombs and rolled in tanks -- could
do the trick in a way that 9/11 and phantom terrorists did not.
Bush/Cheney. They are not done.
